Beautiful You


I love these Beautiful You stamps, and here Ive matched them with a train stamp in two different ways. Im favouring the black and white one, I think!

Hello again

Here is a card I made using the lovely map papers l’ve had for a while now.

This lovely ship stamp goes quite well, I believe, too.

New Home Cards

  • We have new neighbours! Sadly our long time neighbours who have been here for 30 years or more, have had to go into a residential home for extra care. So now we have another couple who seem very nice. I made two New Home cards and cant decide which one to give them.

Here they are, both made using die cuts.

Stencil Look!


I saw some lovely cards being made with this Stencil (maker unknown) and thought I would try it for myself. I used ink daubers to create the backgrounds and then stamped onto the card whilst the stencil was still in place. I love the unusual look of the ‘naked’ background!

Here’s two I made from it, using the Stampin Up Beautiful You stamps

How is my friend 60? How did that happen?!


This must be the year for the big birthdays! My eldest sister turned 70, my other sister turned 60, and two of our friends also turn 60! Seems like only yesterday we were in our twenties!

Heres my card for Yvette, Gold Mirri on Silver Mirri card with the numbers depicted in silver. Wasn’t until I stuck it on that I noticed the gold card wasn’t straight! Don’t you hate it when that happens? Argh!! Too late to re position! Hopefully, the recipient wont notice my boob!
